Avery Tweets from June Keyes
One of my favorite penguins of the group known as the “Brazilians” has a new hobby. Since the June Keyes Exhibit opened Avery the Magellanic Penguin has gone up into the cloud so to speak and set up his own twitter account. This week I’d like to share a few of his tweets.
Avery’s description of himself on Twitter: I’m a foodie and love gadgets. I hear I should fit right in. Long Beach, CA ·
A couple of clams and the otter gives me a smart phone. No questions asked how she got it. This penguin can now tweet!— Avery the Penguin (@AveryThePenguin) May 14, 2012
The back story behind the Twitter account has Avery trading some clams to one of the Aquarium’s sea otters for a smart phone. I can see that happening as sea otters are the greatest scroungers in the animal world.
Shelby the seal had a pup. Think I’ll send her beau Troy a cigar. Or maybe a herring.— Avery the Penguin (@AveryThePenguin) May 16, 2012
Avery realizes that it takes two to make a pup.
We’re not waddling. We’re ambling. It’s what the cool penguins do.— Avery the Penguin (@AveryThePenguin) May 18, 2012
Avery has a certain image of himself that he likes to maintain. He thinks of himself as the World’s Most Interesting Penguin.
Heard they had a celebrity race by the Aquarium last month. Where was my invite?— Avery the Penguin (@AveryThePenguin) May 19, 2012
While the celebrity racers were roaring by the Aquarium in souped up cars during the Long Beach Grand Prix Avery thought to himself “Yeah, I could do that!”
We Brazilians are friendly to humans. No joke. They rescued us. We owe them. Period!— Avery the Penguin (@AveryThePenguin) May 20, 2012
Avery may have a high opinion of himself but he does acknowledge those who helped him survive a rough start in life.
Penguins are more ballistic than aerodynamic. We can get airborne during a porpoise but only for a few seconds.— Avery the Penguin (@AveryThePenguin) May 21, 2012
Yes, he is a smart penguin. Even dwells occasionally into physics. He knows he can’t fly and knows the physics why.
It’s pronounced like mad-gel. Not Magot. I’m a MAD-GEL-LAN-NICK Penguin!— Avery the Penguin (@AveryThePenguin) May 22, 2012
Avery is proud of his species.
Penguin Haiku:Eating my herring. The sound of kid’s oohs and aahs. A June Keyes morning.— Avery the Penguin (@AveryThePenguin) May 23, 2012
Penguin Haiku: Feathers we both have. The penguin told the pigeon. But you cannot swim.— Avery the Penguin (@AveryThePenguin) June 4, 2012
He even writes poetry.
Penguin gossip: Roxy is having a fling with Henry. A penguin almost 20 years her senior. Scandalous!— Avery the Penguin (@AveryThePenguin) May 24, 2012

Hey make sure your kids come by June Keyes and check out our penguin under-look. I’ll show them someone they can look up to… ME!— Avery the Penguin (@AveryThePenguin) May 29, 2012
He has a high opinion of himself.
#GoKings! I think I’d make a great hockey goalie. I’ve never let a herring get by me yet!— Avery the Penguin (@AveryThePenguin) May 31, 2012
Avery didn’t know that the L.A. Kings aren’t named after a species of penguins called King Penguins.”
Having trouble figuring out which penguins are the Brazilians at June Keyes? We’re the incredibly cute ones with the green arm bands.— Avery the Penguin (@AveryThePenguin) June 2, 2012
Avery the tour guide.
Enjoyed the eclipse of the sun last week. Although at first we thought Robbie got hungry and took a bite out of it.— Avery the Penguin (@AveryThePenguin) May 31, 2012
Yes he’s even into astronomy.
Shouldn’t it be the Aquarium of the Penguins?— Avery the Penguin (@AveryThePenguin) June 3, 2012
This summer I would have a hard time arguing with Avery about this.
